First day sales data in Japan from Thursday have been released.
WOW, Soccer is doing great in Japan =]
I'm kind of surprised, Karate is the sport over there.
Actually those numbers are pretty bad. But the Inazuma Eleven series has done well in Japan.
"Karate is the sport over there" I hope you are just joking XD. Baseball is the sport there.
LoL @ the 2 disagrees. If any of you know anything about japan, its baseball>>>>>&g t;daylight>>>> soccer.
I can tell you without doubt that baseball is the sport over there. They are as zealous with their baseball support as Euro soccer fans...minus the hooligans!*L* However, soccer is probably the most popular rising sport. For the last 8 years, their national team has done exceedingly well in the World Cups. World Cup success seems to tie directly to the uptake of the sport domestically.
No Soccer is not doing great in Japan. Football is. We invented the game, we get to name it. END OF.
PS. I'm English.
Nothing too surprising for these sales this time around. Kind of quiet following Golden Week.
Everybody likes Soccer...
americans don't MLS is a joke and this is coming from a guy who dislikes soccer (sorta boring) but i don't deny its popularity
MLS is only a joke to those that don't understand it's brand. No, they can't hold a candle to major leagues around the world. But, they are barely over 15 years old. In comparison, there are European and Latin clubs whose lineage can be tracked back as far as the late 1800's! MLS, and America in general, is playing catch-up in the world sport of football (soccer).
